    I'm starting to notice subtle signs of depression.

    I want to cry when I'm in my uni house - and I cried randomly the other day because I saw a car that looked like my dads (identical apart from number plates)
    I want to go home
    I don't want to eat/want to eat loads
    I can't sleep and when I do I have nightmares.
    I feel very introverted atm and I only want certain people around me

    sigh.

    Just caught myself with a pinchful of eyelashes and felt to find a bald eye lid- I don't know I am doing it until it's too late, sounds hard to believe but I have had trichotillomania for 10 years. Nice one Grace, back to square one with my left eye.

    What's the skin picking one called? I think I may have that, I have a thing about picking at any unusual or not-meant-to-be-there lumps or things that feel odd, on my own skin as well as other people's and I end up picking at them to the extent that they end up in quite big scabs. Often I realise I'm doing it and I know I should stop, but I can't help myself. Ingrown hairs, moles, pimples, scabs, general lumps and bumps all get the squeeze and pick methods, sometimes if I feel it's not out yet I'll get a needle or something sharp and poke around until it's out or it bleeds too much, in which case I'll stop and let it heal enough until I can see it and start all over again.
    It could be normal but something is telling me it's not

    There's various names depending on type and diagnosis. CSP (Compulsive Skin Picking), Dermatillomania or Excoriation Disorder.

    If you're causing skin tissue damage or it's having another physical or psychological effect on you then you may wish to seek treatment.

    It's something I've battled with for a long time now, I have it under control for the most part but will lapse now and then.

    I think I must have some sort of skin picking disorder as well. Whenever I get stressed/upset I pick my lips until they bleed, then if I'm really bad I pick all the skin around my nails until they bleed and then I pick all of my nails :/
    I go through phases of managing to stop but it requires so much lip balm/hand cream/willpower and it's pointless because I always end up starting again.

    They can often go hand in hand. I can empathise, I assume you get/have had support for it?
